Panel Discussion

Creating a Diverse Talent Pipeline in the Absence of Diverse Candidates

Large corporations and small businesses across industries continue to struggle to find diverse talent. One of the main issues is the shortage of diverse professionals in the talent pipeline. Companies around the world suffer from their own version of the pipeline problem, whether in tech, consulting or finance.

A diverse workforce is more creative and innovative. Employees from different backgrounds and skill sets can offer a broader range of ideas and solutions. They can also spot things that other members of the team may not notice. Even if your company has already set up a DEI program, hitting its targets will be a major challenge if hiring practices remain unchanged. It’s time to find new, hungry job-seekers by developing strong, meaningful relationships with diverse candidates. Once you do, your company's ability to bring the best professionals into your talent pool will improve dramatically.

Identifying the root problem interfering with inclusive hiring can help organizations boost both growth and progress. The speakers in this panel will talk about:

  • How to enlarge the talent pool when the market lacks diverse talent
  • How to promote the inclusion of minority employees
  • How to ensure psychological comfort for diverse employees in the post-COVID workplace
